The stage for the Arts Friendly Area Exhibition is the local streets. If art is in the neighborhood, many stores and people will be connected by it: people will meet, talk and communicate through art.
We believe that “connecting” art makes us happy; and this is the concept providing the support and impetus for this project.
The Arts Friendly Area Exhibition / Machinaka Tsunagaru Tenrankai is an exhibition linking art and people. Fifty shops participate from Toshima-ku (Minami-Nagasaki, Nagasaki, Chihaya, Kaname-cho, Ikebukuro, Kita-Ikebukuro) and Nerima-ku (Ekoda). Participants visit neighborhoods and shops while taking in art such as illustrations, graphics, photographs and paintings.
Prior to the exhibition, events, performances and workshops collectively entitled HAJIMARU (“start” in Japanese) and related to all the works involved will be held at the Turner Gallery. After the exhibition, MUSUBI (“end” or “fellowship” in Japanese) will be held at the Kitaike Gallery Portfolio.
“Arts Friendly Area Exhibition/Machinaka Tsunagaru Tenrankai” began in 2016 and had been carried out four times, we had organized an executive committee from this time. The exhibition is supported by Toshima City and Nerima kanko Center.
Including participation from Nihon University of Arts (Ekoda, Nerima-ku) and handicapped social welfare facility, we introduce to the name of the participated artists on our 5th.
